Has anybody heard of useing connceting rods from a 300 6cyl ford in a sbc? Rules say we cant go over 360 c.i., 2 barrels,and no headers. We were going to used a set of power pac heads with flat tops. Want kind of cam would work best. We race on 1/4 mile banked track.

I read a article a few years ago on the 350 chevy should have built they used a 400 block 327 crank and 300 6 cylinder rods the pistons were custom built . If i recall they ran 11 or 12to 1 comp and ran it on pump gas for a street car it was in car craft mag I think . I was always currious how they could get away with that much compression on pump gas.

Small Block Chevy.

good way to look for small block stuff on ebay also.... just type in sbc for a search...that will keep you busy for awhile.

Inline engines have a centered beam on the big end of the rod where a v8,v6 has an offset beam. Put a centerd beam rod in an engine that needs to be offset and it'll knock the pistons and pins out. Not to mention a bent rod and rod bearing wearing on one side.
